I talked to Sherry to find out how she navigates the chaos of making her way through airports and sitting on airplanes:
CWT: What is one thing that you can’t live without on a business trip?
Sherry: My blackberry and laptop (although these seem like mere extensions of my body at this stage).
CWT: Aisle or window?
Sherry: AISLE! I hate having to squeeze by people to get to the washroom, and like to be quick to exit the aircraft.
CWT: What has changed for you over the years when you travel?
Sherry: Longer days, trying to maintain a nutritional balance and trying to keep a good physical routine.
CWT: How many trips are outside of Canada?
Sherry: At least 50%
CWT: Have you had any celebrity encounters on airplanes?
Sherry: Only Canadian politicians – and I’m not sure those are ‘celebrity encounters’ During a trip to Paris, though, I did have one celebrity encounter outside of the Louvre with Meryl Streep – that was very exciting.
CWT: Can you share some tips that help you maneuver your way through those countless airports?
Sherry: Sure! Here are a few of my tried and true tips:
CWT: Do you have any favorite stops that you make in certain airports or cities every time you go?
Sherry: My husband is a Harley owner, so I often try and pop into the Harley Davidson stores in a number of US airports. He has about 30 shirts in his collection… so far!
Thanks for the great tips, Sherry!
After speaking with Sherry, I did a little homework of my own as well…I was curious as to how many potential Harley T-shirts Sherry’s husband might expect in the months and years to come. Turns out there are about 836 international Harley shops and about 1500 Harley shops in the USA (give or take). Given Sherry’s travel schedule, I’m guessing her husband can look forward to adding to his collection of T-shirts!
